Carthage Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Carthage

January 9, 2018 Carley Gatson

With a history stretching back nearly three millennia, Carthage was once the heart of a powerful Mediterranean empire before being leveled by the Romans in the Third Punic War in 146 BC. It sprang from the ashes to become an important early Christian center before again being destroyed by Islamic invaders in the late 7th century. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Carthage is a short train ride from Tunis and has several interesting attractions, like the Punic port and the Carthage Museum.

I came to attend a medical conference in Tunis, Tunisia . Tonight the dinner was arranged to be at this restaurent and the arrangement was done few days prior to arrival.
We were around 75 persons and we were expecting extra ordinary service.
One ☝️ person was serving the whole group with the juice and another 2 persons serving the food for seventy five doctors !!!!
The food taste bad and the quantities are small. The food presentation was not very impressive.
I do not recommend this place for groups though I am not sure if it is good for few people.

Le Golfe

Situe sur la plage de Sidi Abdelaziz a La Marsa, le restaurant Le Golfe vous accueille depuis plus de 50 ans de midi a minuit en service continu.

Reviewed By Jurgen R - The Hague, The Netherlands

It's difficult to beat Le Golfe on a warm afternoon: what is better than enjoying fresh seafood overlooking the sea.
So why not the maximum score: the food was good but not wowing and sitting there on a colder night with the plastic windows down makes the restaurant immediately less enchanting!
Conclusion: Le Golfe is an upscale 'beach restaurant' and my top choice in the area.

Le Bon Vieux Temps

New and old style combined together. Our aim is to provide the nicest food possible with variety every week. Our famous blackboards change everyday, so you will never be bored of our menu.

Reviewed By Keith W

It's one of those places that you're not immediately grabbed by - but as the evening grows you'll appreciate this expat hangout. The waiters are good, the choices classic and as with every restaurant it's about the company. You'll have fun here - even the desserts are amazing!

La Closerie

This is the most popular (and en vogue) restaurant in Tunis now. It serves a French-Italian-Tunisian cuisine. La Closerie's food is delicious, and it's excellent for people watching (particularly of the Tunisian jet-set). You can find some information about it in French on the Tunisian restaurant website resto-tunisie: http://www.resto-tunisie.com/restaurant-la-closerie-,tunisie,484.html

A great place to eat, or should I say to dine, because the excellent food is accompanied by a great atmosphere. Skillful waiters know the ins and outs of the menu. The fish is fresh and keep some space for the Deserts.

Le Cafe Vert

Reviewed By Gabriel_Winter - Washington DC, District of Columbia

Our driver recommended the place to us when we told him to take us to La Goulette. If you know how to pick a really fresh fish, you will have an excellent dinner. They took us back through the kitchen and showed us a pile of a couple of dozen fish on a table. There were four or five varieties probably in varying sizes. I went for a Wolffish, or Loup, with especially clear eyes. They suggested ordering a few giant shrimp to go with it for a dinner for two. Voila. Cold vegetable plates, fries, potato salad, cabbage, sliced cucumber, bread, harissa with tuna, all appear, and then the shrimp and then the fish. Deboned, sliced into medallion steaks, crisp, with head and tail left adjoining and available for further exploration. It was a perfectly prepared fish. Thank you. Let's do that again sometime soon.

Villa Didon

Reviewed By Jurgen R - The Hague, The Netherlands

Villa Didon is hip and happening, the interior is modern and trendy and it is the place to be (and to be seen) on a warm summer evening.
Regretfully the food didn’t live up to our expectations. Examples: the steaks were over cooked and not very tender and the appetizer were far from wowing.
Conclusion: a great place for a cocktail but I would not come again for dinner!

La Spigola

Reviewed By Silvia C - London, United Kingdom

Amazing as always, we love this restaurant in La Goulette where we could sit back, relax and indulge with a vast menu choice.
You can pick your own fish from the counter, they serve complimentary appetizers and lemon sorbet at the end and portions are quite general.
Pity the smoke! There is not really a non-smoker area...
